Short and Spikey Asymmetrical Hair

Short and Spikey Asymmetrical Hair
This short, trendy hairstyle is easy to wear and easy to style. It is slightly asymmetrical, giving it fashion forward appeal. It shows a lot of texture, giving it a messy – not too smooth - look.

The short side: This side is cut to form fringy peices that lay softly over the ear. The fringy side goes up into short spikey bangs over the left eye. The short pieces continue to the top – almost to the center. From there, the hair gets progressively longer, becoming a long side bang over the right eye.
The long side: The right side duplicates the left side in that it is cut in soft fringy pieces that lay over the ear. However, a long bang extends down to meet the side. On this side (right side) the bangs hang over the right eye when they are combed down. The long bang pieces do not necessarily have to blend with the back. They are what is called a “disconnected layer.”

The back: From the back, this cut looks like many short, layered hairstyles. It is trimmed evenly with no hint of the asymmetrical front showing. The nape is left fringy so that it creates a soft neckline. The crown is cut short – about two inches – so that it can ‘stick up.’

Creating texture: After the basic shape is cut into the style, the entire haircut is dramatically texturized. This creates many short pieces throughout the style and leaves many long pieces in between. This makes it easy to create fullness without too much volume. The texturizing also makes it very easy to finish this style using only your fingers.
To style: Apply firm hold styling foam or styling gel. Depending on the length, use either your fingers or a vented brush to push it into style while drying it with a blow dryer. A narrow flat iron can be used to add fullness to the crown and to direct the bangs and the sides toward the face. Finish by scrunching in finishing cream a light hair wax to add more separation of the pieces. Spray with a flexible hold hair spray.

Styling variations:
  • Add flirtatious styling by letting the long bangs hang straight down over the right eye. Try tucking the left side (short side) behind your ear.
  • Style the right side bang (long side) off your face, combing it into a smooth, face-framing side bang. Keep both sides fringed toward your face or tuck them both behind your ears.
Hair color: The style, as pictured is tinted all over with a medium warm brown. Blond highlights are scattered throughout the top, showing up mainly in the longer bang section.
